|Evening In Paris [cyc_041] - The Beige Channel|
EVENING IN PARIS The title refers not to a place and time, but the perfume, which was popular from the 1930s through the 50s. All of the tracks have names taken from famous scents of the past. Guitar loops, Mellotron, mood music, and field recordings were used to create textures that are airy and sparse, or scratchy and dense, but usually with some embedded melodic element, all intended to convey an atmosphere of decrepit nostalgia and corroded beauty...

|The Palace of Gathered Elegance [cyc_039] - Michael Farley|
In August of 2009, our family traveled to Beijing, Zhengzhou, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong while on our second adoption journey. I made field recordings along the way. During the fall, I edited, layered, mixed and processed portions of the recordings for these 9 compositions. I added a guitar part to each one as a kind of commentary and reflection. The titles come from quirky English phrases I saw displayed on T-shirts worn by Chinese kids across the country.
